    After several months without restoring any tool, I’ve recovered this wooden rebate plane, wich I found in a flea market for 2 euro in a small mountain of junk and unusable things. It was a 24 mm thick rebate plane. It was badly twisted and worn, but there weren’t cracks or severe damages in the body, and in the restoration and reflattening process its thickness has become 22 mm, so I had have to resize the blade from 24 mm to 22 mm wide. Biggest problem for me has been the remake of blade bevel and sharpening-honing of the cutting edge, due to the shape of the blade that I found rather difficult to hold. Now it is working again.
    Here you are some pics with before and after.
